Are you a part of the 25 million Christians who are registered to vote yet do not vote in presidential elections, or what about the 65 million Believers that don’t vote in the local polls?
I don’t have to tell you that our country is in major turmoil, yet the Church historically defers their opportunity to influence and impact our culture. So, why the passivity amongst Christian Voters?
Perhaps it’s because the Church has a problem with power and authority—they don’t believe their vote matters and are influenced by the political spirit that creates profound pressure to make the right decision; villainizing candidates, laws, and measures. Much of the Church has lost or forgotten its ability to discern personal convictions from the agenda of the political spirit.
There is a reason you have been empowered with a vote—so that creation itself will be set free from its bondage of decay and brought into glorious freedom (Romans 8:22). Your vote is a spiritual declaration over your city and government just as much as it’s a physical action towards genuine change in our culture.
One way that the sons of God are made manifest comes through you physically voting to rebuild governments, influence culture, and drive an economy that reflects Heaven’s! In fact, if you’re local to California you can register and vote anytime between now and March 3rd by visiting Vote.ca.gov. Other than registering to vote, I want to encourage you to read this week’s blog where I discuss in-depth where the Church’s value for the vote breaks down as well as lay out one simple solution that I believe could change everything!
My prayer for you today is that you’ll begin to recognize that God cares greatly about governmental realities, and your eyes will be open to how He has chosen to use you to be a part of a movement that will impact and influence those realities!
